Chilling out in beauty

  • 5 of 5

our family had the honor of staying for 2 months (Jan and Feb 2018)....every minutes was incredible....the house is beautiful and being basically across from the beach was great...the house is in basically new condition and you honestly don't need to leave because you have everything here....our Aunt stayed in the MIL "house" she loved it and didn't want to leave....we were able to hear the ocean in the pool area and also take a short walks and enjoy the beach. We had our 2 fur babies with us and they enjoyed the long walks and people in the area that gave them attention. The owners did check on us at times to make sure all was going well and they were also a wealth of information of the area. This was the first year of being a semi-snowbirds and we are hooked and know that Florida and the west coast is where we belong....if you have the chance to book this home do it don't give it a second thought...DO IT!

The perfect place for our family to reunite! Now, that we have grown children with their own family, it makes the perfect place for us all to gather and be a family together again! Love the spaciousness of this home, and the renovations! It's beautiful, clean and welcoming! None of us wanted to leave, we all could've stayed for ever! Loved the beach access, beach fishing, relaxing, swimming in the pool, grilling our catch, and watching favorite shows all together! Plus, the older children enjoyed the nightlife, while my husband, and I enjoyed the grand child! Looking forward to returning in 2015, and yearly! Thank you for offer such a wonderful place for us to enjoy!

Felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for allowing our families rent this place, it was so cozy it felt like home! Everything about this rental is so comfortable and it as an awesome beach feel!

Every room is remodeled and trendy, and it felt like a modern upscale hotel. Very clean and plenty of space. The beach is very convenient and the golf cart use helps out tremendously.

We look forward to the opportunity to enjoy your beautiful home again soon!

Family Vacation Memories

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful experience and vacation we had in this beautiful home. Compliments to the owners! This home is very spacious. We could not have found a better place for the entire family to vacation together, yet still have our privacy. The two master bedrooms were perfect for my husband and I and my brother & sister in law, while the guest bedroom had plenty of room for the kids. We also rented the one bedroom guest house for my mom & dad who loved being basically right there with us but also having their "own house" when they needed some rest. The house was beautifully remodeled and everything was clean, bright and excellent condition. The location could not have been better with a short walk to the beautiful beaches. Lots of family time was spent at the pool which opened right up from both of our rooms. We would definitely recommend this house and the guests house for family or friends vacationing together. Many great memories were made and we will return!
